I understand my hon. Friend's point, but it is clear that previous fuel poverty targets and the best practicable means to achieve them have not been successful, so is it not important that when Governments set a target they at least put a reasonable amount of resources into achieving it? Could we not have a fuel poverty Bill that at least ensures that there is some likelihood of achieving the target? I certainly hope that the Government will want to do just that in the child poverty legislation. I also hope it will not take all the Government's resources to alleviate child poverty.
